1994

This is a 95 seat restaurant that occupies both the street and parlor level of a late nineteenth century Italianate brownstone in the heart of Manhattan’s historic Upper East Side. Inside, curved walls and ceilings combine to create a spatial quality that is light and airy with every surface gently bathed in light. A two story skylit volume offers dramatic spatial release at the back of the main floor and helps unite the two floors of the restaurant. Pearwood paneling, colored plaster walls, and marble provide a rich context with- in which subtle elements of bronze, aluminum, and glass begin to play. Formal restraint and charm set the tone in this plush urban space.
